When Christians Support Abortion

Christians can support abortion in different ways.  They may support it indirectly but knowingly through an organization, politician, or political party who advocate for abortion.  Or they may outright support it directly.  Either way, a Christian is supporting something that contradicts their faith, offends God, oppresses life, perpetuates dehumanization, inequality, and hinders the gospel.  This article exposes the Christian hypocrisy and false worship of supporting abortion.

As we have already see, a fetus is a person and equally valuable to God.  We have also seen, in God's Word, the very nature of God is LIFE and that our bodies are not our own.  All of this is revealed by God in scripture.

Christian Duty

Jesus commands ALL Christians to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20).  We have already established that Jesus is LIFE and the life giver.  Baptism symbolizes new life.  The gospel message leads to life! Jesus commands ALL Christians to proclaim life, through teaching and baptism.

Proclaiming The Gospel
"the gospel I proclaimed to you; you received it and have taken your stand on it.  You are also saved by it, if you hold to the message I proclaimed to you—unless you believed for no purpose.  For I passed on to you as most important" (1 Cor. 15:1-3)
Proclaiming the Gospel is "most important" because people are "saved by it".  So having the opportunity to preach it and teach it is critical.  How many aborted children will grow up and have the opportunity to hear the gospel you preach? None.  How many future pastors and fellow laborers in Christ will come out of all those who were aborted?  None.
"But how can they call on Him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about Him? And how can they hear without a preacher? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!" (Romans 10:14-16).
And how can they hear if they were prevented from being born? How will other people come to faith through them if they were never allowed to come to faith themselves?  How many of their silenced voices will proclaim the gospel?  None.  They were stopped from coming to Christ before they even had a chance to hear about God's amazing grace!
"Jesus said, “Leave the children alone, and don’t try to keep them from coming to Me, because the kingdom of heaven is made up of people like this.” (Matthew 19:14). 
Abortion does just that; keeps children from coming to Christ.  Abortion flies in the face of what Jesus stands for.  He, The Lord God commands "don't try to keep them from coming to Me" and yet, supporters of Abortion do exactly that.  Abortion prevents the gospel message from spreading. It takes away a person's opportunity.  It successfully keeps them from coming to Christ in this world.
"instead we endure everything so that we will not hinder the gospel of Christ." (1 Cor. 9:12)
Paul endures public humiliation, jail, beatings, financial hardships, all so that the opportunity to proclaim the gospel can be made.  Abortion hinders the gospel because it forever takes away the ears of the pre-born person from ever experiencing it.  It literally "hinders the gospel" because people encourage mothers not to "endure everything".  

It is also important to consider that the one right we have, is to hear the gospel, the most important human right of all eternity; and the act of abortion takes away the absolute most important right of all; the opportunity to know Christ.

Carnal Christian Excuses

Some Christians may make themselves feel better and say ignorant things like "oh well, all babies go to heaven anyway".  But they don't even know if that is true.  In fact, Paul would argue the opposite.
"There is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks GodAll have turned away; all alike have become useless. There is no one who does what is good, not even one" (Romans 3:11-13). 
"Indeed, I was guilty when I was born; I was sinful when my mother conceived me." (Ps. 51:5).
Children need to be protected, raised, and brought up to hear and understand the gospel so that they can repent and come to faith through it.  Abortion takes that away.  Emotional and illogical people will then say "well that isn't fair of God" but they fail to then understand that God is the Potter and we are just his clay.  They question God Almighty as if they know better.  Like God suddenly isn't justified to rightly punish sin because they refuse to accept what he reveals in his word about our condition before birth.  They fail to understand that God sees and knows all things, all realities, all possibilities, beginning to end, eternally.  Even the things that pre-born person WOULD have done if they were to have been born.  All the sin they WOULD have committed.  All the sin that is in them already as a growing person in the womb.  Pro-abort Christians don't seem to defend the deformed fetuses and protect them from abortion, now all of a sudden it is not fair that a pre-born person is sinful?

The same is then true, God sees and knows what that pre-born person WOULD have said and done if they were given the ultimate opportunities to hear the gospel.  Maybe he will judge them by that, who knows, God does not reveal that in scripture.  But those who assisted, helped, and encouraged the abortion, they too, will stand before God for that life they kept the little child from coming to Jesus and hindered them from hearing the gospel.

Do aborted persons go straight to heaven?  That is a whole other topic that does not seem to be answered in scripture that would favor a "free pass to heaven".  But one thing we can all agree on, is clearly, aborted pre-born persons are critically important and equally valuable.

Warning About Carnal Christians

God does warn the church about such Christians.
"because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, and malice. They are gossips,  slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,  undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful Although they know full well God’s just sentence—that those who practice such things deserve to die—they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them." (Romans 1:28-32)

"If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own;" (John 15:19) 
"But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.  For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,  unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,  holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!" (2 Timothy 3:1-7)
"Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven.  On that day many will say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, drive out demons in Your name, and do many miracles in Your name?’  Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers!" (Matthew 7:21-23)
Abortion is selfish and unloving (hateful toward the pre-born person).  It is proudly done for selfish wealth and status.  They are ungrateful for the fruit of the womb and are brutal toward the goodness growing in them.  They love the pressure that leads to pregnancy but are too conceited to be selfless for the pre-born person.  These people can claim to be Christian, holding to the form of godliness; but Jesus doesn't know them.

When we study God's Word we can clearly see that abortion is absolutely explicitly contrary to God.  But, if you are pro-abortion, it is no coincidence that the world applauds your support and accept you as its own.

Hypocrite Christians

The hypocritical nature of supporting Abortion is astounding.  Claiming to fight for rights of the oppressed but supporting and taking away the absolute greatest most import right of all, hearing the gospel and coming to Christ.

Some people claim to support women while at the same time aborting female pre-born persons; oppressing their rights and keeping them from hearing the gospel and coming to Christ.

Some people fighting against racism and oppression, while supporting the abortion of the race you claim is oppressed; you are then the oppressor and are part of the systemic oppression, even perpetuating it, not fighting it.

Some people claim to be Christian and desiring to lead people to The Life and eternal life, speaking about all kinds of goodness, positive things about God... all the while preventing life of pre-born persons and causing the absolute evil upon the most helpless children.

Some people claim to talk about God's grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love... yet, are ungracious, unmerciful, unforgiving, and unloving to the absolute most in need of their protection and defense.

It is interesting to point out, that abortion is so aggressive and destructive, that even those who fall into the sin of racism, hate, sexism, and bigotry; they still get an opportunity to hear the gospel, repent, and be saved.  Abortion doesn't even afford that.  Thus, abortion is worse than racism.  It is everything racism is, plus more.  It not only oppresses races and targets certain races more than others, but it kills at a more effective rate.  Hitler couldn't even kill all the Jews despite all his hate and efforts.  Abortion, kills 99.9% of all of their victims.  The KKK didn't even go that far to try and kill all of those who they hate.  Abortion is worse than Hiter and the KKK!  It is legal governmental and culturally supported mass genocide.  Again, oppressors and racists still can come to Christ and repent, aborted babies can not.  Let me say that again; racists and the most evil vile people on earth, are given more opportunities to hear the gospel and repent, than aborted babies are...

The world may support hypocritical carnal Christians and cheer them on with their acceptance, tolerance, and even willing blind eye to the mass killing of the greatest in need; but they will answer before God Almighty why they didn't fight for them, defend them, or care enough about them.  We can even ask, why is their heart not effected?  That, in and of itself can expose some hidden idols.

Disobedience to Christ

As established in A Fetus A Person?  We see that it is actually being disobedient to God by not defending them and acting in contrary to God's will by allowing them to perish.

Christians are commanded to seek justice, defend the needy, and not to stop children from coming to Christ; yet, abortion is directly disobedient to God.
"If you love Me, you will keep My commands." (John 14:15)
And that is a big "IF" because, given what ALL God has revealed, it is IMPOSSIBLE to support abortion and keep his commands.  It is impossible to turn a willing blind eye to abortion and keep his commands.  Do you love Jesus?  Really?  Then FIGHT for the unborn person, DEFEND the pre-born person, SEEK JUSTICE for them and for all those who want to kill, take away their rights, oppress, and hinder the gospel.

When "Social Justice" advocacy is more important that speaking out against abortion.

This is shamefully hypocritically embarrassing.  Abortion IS a social justice issue IF you are actually fighting for social justice and not just following suit of a political party or non-christian ideology.  Voting or supporting a "better of the two evil" politicians because they more closely align to what you feel is important is shameful willful ignorance. First of all, supporting a lesser evil is still supporting evil.  Secondly, if the politician, party, or ideology resists racism but supports abortion; ABORTION IS WORSE!  It is everything racism is, plus more!  Your support or willful silence about abortion makes YOU an oppressor!

The question you must ask your self is are you more fearful of the opinions of man if you go against the social trend?  Are you willing to take a stand for the injustice of pre-born persons as commanded by God and break from worldly ideologies?  Is your political preference and political loyalty more important than LIFE and The Gospel?  Can you represent Christ in the same breath you support a candidate that supports killing pre-born persons?  Can you preach about the gospel while you support candidates that prevent you from preaching to pre-born persons?  Can you truly advocate for Social Justice while supporting the oppression, inequality, and no rights for pre-born person?  The answers to these questions help you gauge where your heart is from God's and how indoctrinated by the world you really are.  Do you really seek justice and equality for all, including pre-born persons?  Or do you pick and choose who gets justice and who gets equality fearful of breaking away from the social norm?  In the end, that is on you.

"I Support A Politician, Just Not Their Pro-Abortion Stance" 

Deep down inside of this sort of justification is a deep seeded idol of self.   Babies are being killed by the millions but you can some how look the other way and feel something else is more important, more valuable?  You can prioritize "financial free healthcare" but not the life of an average 125,000 babies daily?  You can prioritize more social welfare for minorities over the lives of minority babies?  Name one topic, the highest priority topic as to why you support a politician or loyal to a political party; then ask yourself; is that more important than LIFE, The Gospel, and Obedience to Christ?  Think about all the years you were a supporter of a pro-abortion politician.  Now, times that number by 45,000,000.  That is the amount of babies, mostly minority, that have been killed by abortion since you started supporting the pro-abortion politician or party.  Is growing the Kingdom of God really the top priority to you?

Abortion Is:

Abortion stops people from hearing the gospel- It hinders the gospel
Abortion destroys life.
Abortion perpetuates self-idolatry.
Abortion perpetuates oppression of the unborn- is oppressive, and empowers people to be an oppressor.
Abortion perpetuates hate against a class that needs protection- it is hate.
Abortion perpetuates inequality of races as it targets some races more than others.
Abortion is hypocrisy.

If YOU claim to be Christian, yet, support organizations, politicians, or political parties who advocate and empower abortion; know that YOU hinder the gospel, contradict the very nature of God which is life, encourage self-idolatry, ARE an oppressor of the greatest in need supporting the most hateful thing which is absolute silence and not rights not even to live. You, are a carnal hypocrite before God with a heart blinded by your own ideological idolatry.

Gospel Loving Christians

Christians who strive to remain obedient to Christ can support and advocate for any politician of any political party of any political ideology as so long as they can glorify God and proclaim The Gospel of Jesus Christ in it and through it.  God's Glory and The Gospel are greater than any politician of any political party of any political ideology.   They support LIFE in this life and in the next for all people!  They fight for the RIGHT for all people to be free to worship The Triune God.  They desire to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and magnify the glory of God to all people.

Susan B. Anthony List is a non partisan organization that ranks politicians solely based on their views of abortion.  It is a good resource to turn to in helping you find a politician that supports LIFE.  If we can fight to protect life, that brings another life into this world that can hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and can come to Christ in faith!
